February has came and passed and it felt like it flew by. It might be because February only has 28 days in it but I really enjoyed the month. Celebrating Valentine’s Day and my mom’s birthday was a lot of fun but I’m really excited about March with all the exciting things I am doing. But, it is time that I go and wrap up the month with my February Wrap Up!
Yes Please by: Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler can’t write a book. She can only talk about all the things that she has had to go through in her life. Amy takes the reader into a journey through her life – through her struggle with drugs, love, her family, and trying to make it into the world of actors/actresses. Included in the book are stories that Amy has never talked about before, her experiences of being pregnant and shooting a TV Show, and includes a million of pictures of her life. Reading this book makes it feel like Amy Poehler is sitting right there in front, reading you the book.

I started watching this show the other day and I am freaking obsessed with it! I have had this on “My List” on Netflix for the past two or three months and I am finally getting to it. This show basically has me on the edge of my seat, and wanting to sit at home and watch all the episodes I can get my hands on! Because I am an overthinker, I sit here and watch this show, trying to find out the same stuff that Alex is trying to find out. The way this show is planned out and it has been directed is amazing and I really want to go and finish Season 1 right now!
Double Chocolaty Chip Creme Frappuccino –
I’m a big fan of Starbucks. I really love Starbucks. My mom had a $10 gift card so we went to go and get some coffee. It was close to 8 pm so I didn’t want to get hyped up on coffee so I went with a frappunccino. The first time I had one of these was when I went to meet Marie Lu and I feel in love with it. Now, I remember why I do. There are so many things that I want to try when I am there but I always get the same thing when I go! I could go for one right about now!
